This is a little wild - thus the name. I'm experimenting and playing with some different surfaces and a looser style. Of course it feels a little foreign so it's still in the development stage. It was fun to try something a little different. Where it goes remains to be seen! 

On another note, I wanted to share a couple birds I met this past weekend. I am an artist with Project Art for Nature and I've been exploring areas latley for study. I've decided I want to make my focus on birds - right now -herons and cranes. 
And raptors. 
These are two birds that are taken care of at the Lowry Nature Center in Carver Park Reserve. During an educational session I was able to get pretty close for some pics. The top one is a Merlin and the other is a Barred Owl. Definitely different personalities and both amazingly beautiful.

Thanks for visiting!

Really love the abstract nature of this one. Looks good mon. Hey, email me your snail mail address and I'll send you a book on hawks. I think you'll find it interesting and helpful. By the way, the illustrations are awesome ... snark.
